My Opinion

This book introduces you to Nora McNeill, fulfilling her lifelong dream to visit the birthplace of her ancestors.

With “A Bittersweet Garden”, Caren J. Werlinger has created a wonderful story of exploring one’s Irish ancestry, dealing with a ghost, as well as a little history of Ireland and a touch of romance. It is a very enjoyable and compelling read, drawing you in as you learn more about Nora and the other characters. Caren J. Werlinger paints a clear picture of Nora and Briana’s minds while the story evolves. I was drawn very close to Nora – a woman who follows Ireland’s calling, needs to find herself, and has to deal with a strong-willed ghost. The characters are complex, believable with their flaws and virtues…

This unusual Victorian romance tells the story of two people who do not plan marriage with anyone. At 28, Jenny Holloway is a spinster “past her prime” and after life as a drudge caring for her ungrateful father, her ambition is for independence and the opportunity to travel. Tom Finchley is a successful, London attorney whose lonely childhood has given him the drive to work long hours, with little time for pleasure.  But as Jenny sets out to travel to British India with her legacy and two trustworthy servants, Tom finds himself compelled to accompany her.  Soon, despite antagonism, they draw closer and begin an intimate friendship not normally possible for respectable single men and women.

Mimi Matthews has the ability to reveal her…

Her Midnight Sin (A Shadows and Silk Novel)Her Midnight Sin by Sofie Darling

4 stars

Her Midnight Sin is a Regency romance. Callie is a widow, who currently runs Wyldcombe Grange in Devon. It’s part of Viscount St. Alban’s estate, and one he wishes to sell off. But it’s Callie’s home and she’s poured her heart into making it turn a profit; she can’t stand the thought of losing it all. In her haste to raise the funds to buy the property herself, Callie strikes a deal with a notorious pirate.

John Nylander is a law-abiding captain of The Fortuyn. An orphan, he was raised by Viscount St. Alban’s sea-faring family. Chance circumstances and a bout of malaria have him sent to Wyldcombe Grange to convalesce. Once recovered, he admires the way Callie runs the estate; it would be just the place he would like to have for himself.

To Callie, Nylander is the very attractive enemy…

The Disgraceful Lord Gray (The King's Elite #3)The Disgraceful Lord Gray by Virginia Heath

4 stars

The Disgraceful Lord Grey is an historical romance and part of the King’s Elite series. It takes place in Suffolk in 1820.

The King’s Elite are on the trail of The Boss, a notorious leader of a smuggling gang. Lord Graham Chadwick (Gray) and his superior Lord Fennimore have set themselves up as neighbours of Viscount Gislingham, who may just be the elusive Boss.

Whilst swimming in a stream, Gray meets Gisingham’s niece Thea. He uses the chance meeting to secure an introduction to her uncle, but the man he meets seems unlikely to fit the role of a gang leader. Instead the charming Gislingham encourages Gray to pursue his niece.

Romancing Thea might be easy for Gray because he likes her, but he has a scandalous past; one which left him penniless. However Thea is not an easy catch, and…

Rosie’s #Bookreview of #Contemporary #Romance Thrill Of Love by @Melissa_Foster

Rosie Amber

Thrill of Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #6; The Bradens #18; Love in Bloom #37)Thrill of Love by Melissa Foster

4.5 stars

Thrill Of Love is a contemporary romance with strong emotional themes.

This is the story of Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell, photographers and adventurers.  The couple met in Switzerland but went their separate ways until they met again at a five-day wilderness event held in Colorado.

Although there is much spark and passion between them, Aiyla has a niggling leg injury which Ty insists she gets checked out. The storyline turns serious with the diagnosis of a bone cancer, and the long-term medical decisions that Aiyla must make.

Foster always uses strong characters and the romance is hot, but the serious themes within each story are also very well-written. These books can be read as stand-alone stories or enjoyed as part of the larger family series that is still continuing to grow.
